Today’s hot topic: Project Fear of climate change


BORIS Johnson has appointed the outgoing Bank of England governor Mark Carney as a climate change adviser. According to the Telegraph, his role will be to make climate change a key part of every financial decision, and create a more sustainable financial system to support the bid to end the UK’s contribution to global warming by 2050.

A few years ago Johnson criticised Carney for ‘talking Britain down’ following yet another doom-laden warning over the risks of Brexit. 

Last summer leading Brexiteers including Iain Duncan Smith accused the governor of being a key architect of ‘Project Fear’ and of undermining Brexit negotiations. 

With such a track record of harmony and co-operation, what makes Canadian Carney the right man for this job? Discuss!
